My October Goals! My Flaws & What Could Be Improved

7 October 2017



The months just keep flying by don't they? Blimey. 

Well I think I am getting on just fine since the horrible happenings during summer and I going down a route where I can safely say 'I am getting there' thankfully enough. 

I have some good news! I can finally announce that I am going to Tokyo at the end of May 2018 and I am absolutely over the moon. I'm so incredibly happy, I have been wanting to go to Japan since I was eleven years old ever since my pre-teen otaku little self got into manga and starting learning more about the country. I'm super delighted! 

Also I will be able to meet friends from Japan I have had for the past six years or so! Pen pals and Skype friends who can finally meet me, we can grab a drink and perhaps hang out. It'll be an excellent experience. 

My aunt said it may be the making of me as I am going alone and the reason why I am going alone is because not all of my friends can afford it. Tokyo isn't a cheap place, it's actually slightly cheaper than London and Paris but it is still pricey. So look out for the spam of posts and all the recommendations I will be posting! 

Trust me. There is going to be a lot of pictures! Perhaps even a short vlog...





It's time to get stuck in!



When I say this I am talking about actually motivating myself to start my university projects, which I am finding incredibly difficult at the moment. I just cannot seem to concentrate on what I have to do! The most I have done is open up Adobe Indesign, create a series of pages to begin my journal and write the title of my essay. I'm in third year now and it's so much harder to make the grade apparently, I'm bricking it and stressing before the stress period has begun. 

Plus it doesn't help our deadline is super, super early too. We finish for Christmas far earlier though which is good but at the moment it's dire to get everything done to the best of our abilities. I don't know how I'm going to do this... I spend more time at home than I do university anyway which is no excuse really. I always feel really lethargic, sleepy or just need to do something else before starting my projects. Hopefully it can change.




Am I making an effort?


One thing which has been irritating me lately is my blog posts and I always think they don't contain the best pictures. I know, I know my last phone wasn't exactly the best and so therefore the camera quality was pants. Now I have upgraded to the iPhone 8! The camera is amazing, I love it so much and it's improved my Instagram feed drastically. You can really see the difference in an instant!

So I think what I must start doing is take my time with each post, make sure the photos are the best of the best before I hit that publish button.




But I love a good pig out! 



What even is a diet anymore? I can't even recall when my diet didn't include a hot chocolate on a daily basis, a pasta pot here and there or the odd block of chocolate at night. I'm terrible! I always have been to be honest. 

However I have noticed myself getting a lot more out of breath just climbing stairs up to New Look or even the train station. I'm knackered! I really need to get back at the gym and improve my fitness because it's bloody terrible right now. 

More than anything I need to get into a routine in order to balance university, work and going back to the gym together. I just end up craving... especially when I get stressed with the workload. 




Health and myself come first... right?


I know the whole mental health and self care thing is practically a trend right now, I do like how it is being highlighted a lot nowadays and taken into account so much more than it did when I was still at school that's for sure. But as I mentioned in my previous post featuring how I am dealing with slight depression and the current grief I am still going through, I am finding it difficult as well as trying to keep it together and continue with life. 

I'm kind of glad this is my last year of university because at the moment what I am earning isn't too great, I'd love to be on better money in a job I like and in a better place where I could meet new people too. Just being happy and moving on but with university although it's alright it isn't that great. 

It just feels really bland, antisocial and quiet most of the time. Plus I'm sick of the commuting to another town too because it's such a ball ache and when I do get to class I feel like I get more done at home as opposed to sat there listening to my tutor waffle on.

 I'm just getting restless really and craving the moment I get to leave so I can move on I suppose. I had high hopes for university while everyone gets super excited I found myself to be placed in a class where it feels isolated, boring and draining. But I guess I only have around eight months left until I leave. I'm going to start concentrating on me more and loving myself though, focus on my future and what has to be done. 








Do you have any particular goals right now that need doing this month? Let me know!
